Sync clock with Nat'l Bureau of Standards?

Sync clock with Nat'l Bureau of Standards?

Post by a.. » Thu, 09 Feb 1995 04:57:45



I've got a program for MS DOS machines that dials the
National Bureau of Standards' computer and synchronizes
the clock with their (atomic?) clock.

I'd love to have something like this for Linux -- does
anyone know if such a creature exists???

Thanks,

Alan

I've written a program that accesses the UK equivalent in the
National Physical Laboratory at Teddington, Middlesex, UK.

I'm not at my PC right now, but I'll email you a copy of the source
when I get the chance.

What about using NTP (xntpd) ???  Works like a champ for us!

1. Want to have an atomic clock sync your Linux box clock ?

Easy, just add:-

"0 12 * * *    /usr/sbin/rdate -s 129.6.15.28"

tp your root crontab, and everyday your clock will be
updated at midday. You may not have the "rdate"
program installed, or it may nor be in /usr/bin
as it is on my Debian system.

To find out if "rdate" is on your Linux box, just
try "locate rdate".

What is 129.6.15.28 ?
